Press office contacts

KCC Media Hub – maintained by Kent County Council press office

Our press office responds to media enquiries from journalists about KCC services and policies.

We can arrange TV, press and radio interviews with Cabinet, Lead Members and senior officers.

We’ve recently converted our phones to Skype so if you cannot get through to a specific press officer, call 03000 418080.

The duty press officer outside of office hours this week is Suz Elvey on 07738 755491.
